Antoine François PREVOST D'EXILES (dit Abbé PREVOST) Le philosophe anglois, ou histoire de Monsieur Cleveland, fils naturel de Cromwel, Ecrite par lui-même & traduite de l'anglois

Antoine François PREVOST D'EXILES (dit Abbé PREVOST)

Le philosophe anglois, ou histoire de Monsieur Cleveland, fils naturel de Cromwel, Ecrite par lui-même & traduite de l'anglois

Chez Paul Vailant, à Londres 1777, 6 tomes en 6 Vol. in 12 (9,5x16,5cm), (4) xxiv, 429pp. et (4) 439pp. et (4) 424pp. et (4) 366pp. et (4) 360pp. et (4) 372pp., six volumes reliés.


new edition, illustrated with 12 figures Desrais. Title pages in red and black. Volumes appeared successively in 1731, 1732, 1734 1739 and the entire novel published for the first time in 1741. Calf Full marbled time. Smooth back decorated. Parts of titles and volume numbers in red morocco. Marbled edges. Caps of Volume I and V threadbare. Good copy nonetheless. It was in England that the Abbe Prevost (one of the greatest novelist of the eighteenth and most prolific) writes English episodes and the utopia of Cleveland is part of his early works: in this travelogue, the hero, "natural son of Cromwell," is looking for philosophical certainty and emotional tranquility. It explores the limits for this purpose and potential of love, wildlife, dogmatism Protestant, over-rich events. The Cleveland American utopia of a new world dies because there is no world redeemed, based on natural morality, which can resist evil. Thus, like most works of Prevost, Cleveland born of a tension between society and individual aspirations. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
